Middleweight champ Michael Bisping has no shortage of opponents hoping for a shot at his belt, but perhaps the most shocking is Georges St-Pierre who wants to come out of retirement.
"I have nothing against Georges St-Pierre apart from the fact that he retired from the sport and was like, ‘No, I can't do it because people are taking performance enhancing drugs.' Well guess what, they were and they're getting caught," said Bisping on his radio show The Countdown on SiriusXM Rush.
"But if you're a man, if you're a fighter, if you're not a little bitch, you'll still continue to take those chances and try to beat those people. You won't run away to the shadows and disappear because you think you can't compete."
Ouch, that's harsh. But I can see where he's coming from.
St-Pierre is the second longest reigning champion in UFC history and tied with Bisping for most UFC wins, so it seems this would be a good match. Although it looks like Bisping has his eyes on someone else first.
"I've got somebody in mind for my next fight and when that's taken care of, if GSP's man enough and he wants to step on the dotted line and fight, I will happily fight Georges St-Pierre," he said.
Could that "somebody" be Dan Henderson perhaps?
I guess for now I will just wait on the edge of my seat!
